Taking A Chakra Reading

How to use a pendulum

Learn how to balance your chakras by using a pendulum. You can see how to offer a complete chakra reading by simply using a pendulum or similar dowsing tool.

To take a chakra reading, place the pendulum over a chakra of yourself or someone else. Hold it about 2-3 inches over the chakra. You can do this on the front or back, but over the front gives the person the opportunity to see the movement for themselves. As the pendulum starts to swing, note how open or closed the swinging movement is. If it swings in a wide circle, then the chakra is probably very open. It may leave the person too vulnerable to outside influences. This chakra needs protecting and closing. If the pendulum hardly swings, the chakra is almost closed and depleted in energy. The energy in this chakra needs to be stimulated and balanced.

As you check each chakra, make notes of whether you need to:

  • i. Disperse and balance energy – clearing
  • ii. Build and strengthen
  • iii. Expand and transform to a higher vibration (spiritual expansion)

STEP 1: – The first step in the healing process is to clear negative emotions and beliefs. This means we need to allow painful feelings to come to the surface in order to express our feelings and release the pain we are holding inside. We all have to learn to let go of old thought and behaviour patterns.

Crystals can help move this stagnant energy, cleansing and clearing out these harmful vibrations. Once this is done, you will feel empowered and liberated and will experience a sense of relief and freedom.

When dealing with subtle energy, it is very important to remember that when you move energy, you will create a vacuum in the place the energy occupied. You cannot leave a vacuum or you are inviting any type of replacement energy to rush in.

It is the responsibility of the healer to make sure that positive energy replaces the impure energy, which has been removed.

STEP 2 – Building And Strengthening- The next step in the process is to instill and build up new positive vibrations. This means forming new thought patterns and re energising the system.

Certain healing stones can help infuse energy, giving strength on which to build these new positive ways of thinking. It is essential we learn to change our attitudes and reactions and actions, as these vibrations are the ones that caused the imbalance in the first place.

If we do not change, we will find that we revert to the same problems as before. It may be a physical ailment, which will keep recurring, or it may be an emotional or mental problem, which we cannot overcome. Positive affirmations are particularly helpful and can be used with crystal healing to help create new thought forms and patterns.




STEP 3 – Expansion – Once we have changed our thinking and behaviour we will find that we have made a great step forward in our own personal growth and understanding. Now the crystal healing can help us expand spiritually, lifting our vibrations out of our mind, emotions and physical body. This allows us the ability to experience inner wholeness and connection with all life. The energy from stones, which stimulate spiritual expansion, is very light and finely tuned. It is a building energy that works at higher levels of spiritual awareness. We often find that these healing stones are very light in colour and have great clarity.
